A new upscale hotel is coming to the Domain in North Austin that will be the third in the U.S. under the boutique Archer brand, developers told the*American-Statesman*Monday.

Slated to break ground this fall, the 168-room Archer Austin will be across from a planned Nordstrom store.

The 8-story hotel will have a rustic “Texas chic” theme, with design touches including native Texas limestone, terraces with fireplaces and canopy beds. Each of the guestrooms is being designed to have a different feel.

The hotel is being developed by Wichita-based LodgeWorks Partners, a privately-held hotel development and management company, and Austin-based Endeavor Real Estate Group, the original developer of the mixed-use Domain near North Mopac Boulevard (Loop 1) and Burnet Road.

“Expanding the Archer collection into a destination as engaging and exciting as The Domain in Austin is tremendous and an absolutely perfect fit,” said Mike Daood, president of LodgeWorks.

Austin Archer will join three other hotels at the 302-acre Domain: Aloft, which LodgeWorks also owns; a Westin and a Lone Star Court.

That was awesome. I'd love to have an office near the top of this building. Such a great looking tower already. Something nice to break up the pattern of residential buildings downtown. Still hoping for a supertall office building downtown.

I want to go back to Austin eagerly. Hopefully it won't be too long until I have that opportunity. I will be doing training in San Antonio for the Air Force.

New 50 Story Tower For Austin


New planned downtown tower could be Austin’s second-tallest building

Quote:
Friday, Aug. 8, 2014

An ambitious high-rise tower that is destined to become the city’s second-tallest building is on the horizon for downtown Austin, the developers told the American-Statesman.

The building, which could soar 50 stories and possibly higher, is planned for a 1.7-acre site at Third Street and West Avenue, just east of the former Seaholm Power Plant that is undergoing a major transformation. The new tower is expected to have 400 condominium units, up to 120,000 square feet of office space and 15,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, said the developers, Perry Lorenz and Larry Warshaw with Austin-based Constructive Ventures.

Construction is due to start in the fourth quarter of 2015, and will take 2 1/2 years to build. Construction costs are likely to top $200 million. Constructive Ventures’ partner in the project is Austin-based developer Aspen Heights, which is about to break ground on an apartment high-rise at Eighth and Nueces streets.

At 50 stories, the new tower would eclipse the neighboring 44-story condominium tower called the 360, currently Austin’s second-tallest building. The tallest building is the 56-story Austonian condo tower at Congress Avenue and Second Street.

Lorenz said the planned tower, which would be on the banks of Shoal Creek and in the heart of the downtown’s revitalized west end, “has the potential to become an iconic addition to both the culture and the skyline of downtown Austin.”
